Put a General Electric trash compactor in your workspace or office to reduce trashGeneral Electric compactors are appliances designed to reduce trash volume by as much as 75 percent. While GE doesn’t have commercial GE compactors as such, for most office needs, a regular GE compactor is more than powerful enough to perform the task of crushing waste to a manageable size.
GE compactors typically have a number of common features. They include a 1/3 HP motor, noise insulation, an air freshener filter and a tilt-away trash basket. With most models you have the choice of using paper or plastic trash compactor bags. Variables between models include the capacity and the amount of force available to compact the trash. No matter which model of compactors by GE you choose, you should look for the following:
1. A General Electric trash compactor must have a removable key/knob control that prevents opening the compactor when it’s in use.
2. The General Electric trash compactor should have a large enough capacity for your needs.
3. Choose a General Electric trash compactor with an anti-jam system.
Choose GE trash compactors from the Profile series
Pick GE compactors from the Monogram seriesMonogram series compactors are quite stylish, but they are a bit more inexpensive than the higher end Profile series. They offer many of the same standard features at a lower cost. Most models are built-in styles that come in today's decorator colors.
Buy replacement bags for your General Electric trash compactorThis item is a key component and you should keep trash bags on hand at all times. If you shop around, you can find trash compactor bags sold in bulk. Depending on the model of General Electric trash compactor, you may be able to purchase generic bags and save even more. Be careful of bargain bags, though, because they may not be thick enough to withstand the force of the trash compaction.
- Keep your General Electric trash compactor in good operating condition by cleaning it periodically. Turn off the electricity to the unit and then wipe it down inside and out. Clean the tracks, glides and rollers. You can use simple dishwashing detergent and water for the task. When you finish, lightly lubricate the track with household oil. Change the filter periodically to help keep odors down.
